One of the premiere vocalists of her time, this Bay Area living legend remains true to her Mississippi roots infusing the blues into everything from Cole Porter to Michelle Legrand songs. Heavily influenced by contemporaries Betty Carter and Aretha Franklin, The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol & Her Trio formed in the 1970s and began to cultivate an audience that remains as diverse as her uplifting music. She's shared the stage with such notable names as Charles Brown, David Murray, Gene Ammons, Ray Charles, Billy Higgins, Steve Turre, Albert King, Bobby Hutcherson, Pharaoh Sanders, Philly Jo Jones, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Tootie Heath, and Ben Vereen. Miss Carol has appeared at Montreal Jazz Fest, Monterey Blues Fest, DePaul University, Town Hall, UCLA Jazz Fest, Lorraine Hansberry Theater, Yerba Buena, Napa Valley Opera House, Bay View Opera House and Denver Museum of Natural History.
